Congenital cataracts

A congenital cataract refers to the clouding of the eye's natural lens present at birth. Depending on the density and location of this opacity, congenital cataracts may necessitate removal through surgery during infancy to facilitate normal vision development and prevent conditions like amblyopia and potential blindness.
 
Various factors can lead to congenital cataracts in newborns, including genetic predisposition, infections, metabolic disorders, diabetes, trauma, inflammation, or reactions to medications.
 
Different types of congenital cataracts include anterior polar cataracts, posterior polar cataracts, nuclear cataracts, and cerulean cataracts.
